## Algebraic Structure: Also known as

Some sources refer to an **algebraic structure** as an **abstract algebra**, but this term is more generally used for the branch of mathematics that studies **these structures**.

Some sources use the term **algebraic system**, which $\mathsf{Pr} \infty \mathsf{fWiki}$ reserves for a slightly more general concept.

Some sources use the variant term **algebraic structure with $n$ compositions**.

Some sources use the notation $\gen {S, \circ_1, \circ_2, \ldots}$ for $\struct {S, \circ_1, \circ_2, \ldots}$ and so on.
